A two-day pop-up exploring the ideas fascinating artists right now

Drop in for artist-led workshops, talks, demonstrations, micro-courses, show-and-tells, focus groups and peer critiques in a perfect miniature of the Bristol based Spike Associates programme.

These two days at Tate Exchange are an opportunity for Spike Island collaborators to share their skills and knowledge in a creative exchange. Discover more about the ideas that are fascinating artists right now and the skills they are developing to make their work. Members of Spike Island’s Associates network will be on hand to welcome you, introduce you to the activities and invite you to share your own knowledge and skills.

Full programme announced shortly. Please check here for details.

This event is programmed by Spike Island, a Tate Exchange Associate.
